Sunshine Sunday - slides and songs

Every once in a while something happens that really touches me.....something that makes me happy to know that there are truly good, kind, thoughtful people in this world.  Sometimes it's a comment from one of you. 

This time it was a sweet family in our neighborhood that called us to see if we'd like to have their old swingset.  They have one child and he's kind of old for it.  It's not new.  In fact they inherited it from someone, but it's sturdy and old school.  I was so excited and happy that they would think of us.  We don't even know them really, really well.  (They are actually the family I called to report a job well done on one of the Wake Up Wednesday challenges.)

Anyhow, here's the sweet slide that's been a hit around here.

One of my very favorite sounds is hearing my boys sing.  They haven't quite mastered pitch, but it's still the sweetest sound to me.  Baden picks up on words pretty quickly.  The other day I whipped out my phone to record him.  He's singing "I Am a Child of God," which we've sung to him every night since he was a baby.  I could listen to him sing it a billion times.  I'll write the words below, since it's hard to make them all out.

I am a child of God and He has sent me here, has given me an earthly home with parents kind and dear.  Lead me, guide me, walk beside me, help me find the way.  Teach me all that I must do to live with Him someday.

I am so grateful for my boys.  They are teaching me so much.

Hope you've had a great weekend.  Thanks for reading.
